A concise account of life on Australian and New Zealand ships during the early part of World War II.
The part played by the navies of Australia and New Zealand in the Second World War is here commemorated in a series of brilliant sketches that are worthy of the fine ships and the brave men they portray. The authors have collected their data from the personal accounts of men who were in the ships concerned, and with the story tellers art, they have woven the facts into a vigorous, full-blooded narrative.
